Last Friday night, Oct. 12, 11 new members were initiated into the Wells Legion by Zone Commander Vivian MacNeil.

A free Community Supper, including lemon merigue pie, was prepared by Ember Harper, Amanda and Reba Escott as their first-ever effort  and it was a resounding success.

Wells #128 is the smallest Legion in Cariboo Zone, yet has managed to enlist 41 new members in the past few months.  This could be a record for BCYukon Command. Wells Branch not only boasts a record of new members but has put in a new pool room, revamped their bar area and built an outdoor patio.

President Doug Merrick attributes all this to the influx of new members, most of whom are under 30.  According to him, the construction of the Games Room is due to the hard work of these young people and they make good use of the pool tables on a regular basis.

Branch #128 is to be congratulated on all their hard work and their recruitment of new members.
